the "stand by me" video is awesome. used to go see Grandpa Elliot on the street corners in N.O. all the time when I lived there. he can turn any song into something magical

Mark Johnson when you realized the music was outside the studio, you got it... ordinary humans.... living their ordinary lives... doing what they love each day with passion and conviction...for no other reason than they love doing it... not for recognition.... but for their soul....sharing their innermost love with the human race .. for all to enjoy .. because they were loving what they were doing. You saw.....what is real...now you are all showing us... we can all live our ordinary lives... doing what we can, doing what we love, making a difference with passion and conviction for the human race... a change is gonna come...... mo fire....

I just saw this show in L.A. on Friday. Ziggy Marley and Toots came out (separately) and played with the band. Everyone took turns leading. Molitz was on keys in his hometown! It was a really sweet night. Lots of African music, which I love. Grandpa Elliot was the real treat. See this band if you want an uplifting experience.
